Thanks for all the replys
well the other day i checked the fuel filter in carb, looked ok, found some blue paint chips, i recently had the car painted blue. Dont know if there is a connection.
but anyway the car started rough and began to run at high idle. I checked each plug for spark as it was running, spark was good.
One thing i noticed on the two rear plugs closest to the fire wall when i pulled the wire off about a 1/2 inch or so the car seemed to run better. Is this an indication i need new wires or plugs. also noticed no arching.
anyway the car was then running strong after i fooled with wires. I got daring and took it for a drive around the block. I made it back with no incident. I then pulled in the garage, to save myself the push, and shut it off. I then tried restarting it, it fired right up! I know i am just as confused. sometimes it wants to run sometimes it doesnt. So i really didnt change anything and it ran fine. Although i did notice a good amount of white smoke coming out the tailpipes and smell of unburnt gas, need to adjust carb right, can anyone tell me best way to do that. I am a novice at making an engine run right, carb is original 2 barrel.
once again thanks for all the replies and help is appreciated
